Xaviera Hollander, in one of her books, mentions an English client of hers
who was in the habit of reciting King Henry's speech from* Henry V in media
coitu.  *He would try to time it so that he climaxed right at "God for
Harry, England, and Saint George!"

My mother (an English teacher) would have probably been hugely amused, had
I dared bring this to her attention.  When she found out that I could read,
she ran straight out and got a copy of the Classics Illustrated *Macbeth*,
since she'd taught that play for years to her high-school students.
